December 1, 2023  By P&PC Staff

Irving Pulp & Paper shared in a recent press statement that it is investing in skilled trades. It has twenty apprentices currently working in the mill, four of whom are expected to receive their Red Seal certification in the upcoming year.

The twenty apprentices include industrial electricians, industrial mechanics (millwrights) and instrumentation control technicians. The growing demand for skilled tradespeople across New Brunswick enhances the importance of ensuring top-tier programming and support for apprentices is available in the province.

“Being able to continue to grow and develop in my career learning from top-notch professionals all while staying in New Brunswick is the best,” says Mitch Gallant, industrial electrician apprentice.


The company explains that apprenticeship is a long-standing part of New Brunswick’s post-secondary education and plays a major role in successfully developing skilled trades careers. Investing in the talented next generation while providing rewarding careers close to home.

J.D. Irving Limited’s Pulp & Paper Division employs over 220 tradespeople.
